Although harrowing using chain harrows is a medical technique, but it still has a vital role in modern farming. You can simply attach a drag harrow for trail grooming behind a tractor, a quad bike or anything similar. You just need enough power to pull this, and it will do the job automatically.
But why do people still use different types of harrows? Here are some reasons to use harrows in these times.
To reach its full growth potential, soil needs to be aerated. Aerated soil can help in growing grass pretty quickly. When you use a harrow on dense and compacted soil to soften it up, the water will easily be available to roots of plants, and this is always good for their growth.
If you have any amount of unwanted weeds in the paddocks, you can simply use a harrow to soften it up and remove the weeds easily. Larger weeds can also be removed easily with the help of this useful equipment.
To Spread Manure
To effectively use manure, you must first loosen up the upper crust of the soil to make place for the manure to seep into the soil. With a harrow, you can easily spread and break up manure for nice even spreading across the field.
To Level The Soil
Soil that is regularly in use can develop uneven areas on the surface. If this is the problem, you can use a chain harrow to make the soil surface even. These harrows are not only used in the fields, you can also use them to level up playgrounds and arenas.
Raking of Seedbed
You can also use an unturned harrow to spread a layer of soil over the freshly sown seeds. This makes your work easier than ever.
